that responsibility. to use those resources properly. to rebuild their country and establish some kind of democratic government there in iraq. you know, he also pointed out, however, that since the u.s. military will remain there for some time, he's still optimistic that all of the u.s. military could be out by the end of 2011 and pointed out that if that were to change, the iraqis would be the ones that would have to change it and gates himself doesn't think that would be politically viable for the iraqis to do that. and, finally, when asked if the war was worth it, gates, actually, thought about this for a minute before saying, look, the problem is no matter how much success the u.s. military may have had, how much success the u.s. government will have in the coming months in helping put together some kind of democratic institutions there in iraq, the war itself will always be clouded by the fact that the u.s. went to war on an invalid proposition that saddam hussein had the weapons of mass destruction. >> all right, nbc jim mic miklaszewski at the pentagon for us. thank you, mik. >> you bet. >>>

trigger other evacuations within the watch and warning areas. >> give us an area, from where to where do you recommend that people are very conscious about this storm? >> all right, i would take anywhere along the north carolina coast, tropical storm conditions in the far southeast, all the way up to the virginia beach area because that's the area that will be impacted as early as tomorrow on into tomorrow night and early friday morning. depending on how far offshore it is, we may have a problem friday into saturday for southern new england and the eastern tip of long island, but everywhere along the east coast should monitor the track of this in case there's an unexpected shift to the west. >> when you talk about a sudden shift, you're worried about the eye of the storm, whether it will go closer to land? >> that's absolutely correct. we'll put a different graphic up here, this shows you the win shear as it goes across cape hatteras. in that area it's hurricane force winds. if the track was further west, it would bring hurricane winds. of course you'll have tropical storm force winds al
